The two principal reception rooms are entered via six panel doors, with the drawing room being situated on the south and east elevation. It is a fine room, having oak panelling throughout, an ornate Victorian carved frieze around the fireplace, a dual aspect via sash windows and a beam to the ceiling. The dining room is situated on the easterly elevation in the Victorian addition, with generous ceiling heights, views to the front and an impressive marble fire surround.

In the centre of the property there is an attractive study, which has a high ceiling, views over the garden, exposed beams to the walls and ceiling, and a Victorian fireplace. The sitting room is situated on the southerly aspect and has a dual aspect with French doors leading to a terrace and the garden, making it suitable for entertaining. The fireplace is framed by two sash windows which have views over pasture.

The kitchen/breakfast room forms the heart of the house and is fitted with a range of oak units with granite work tops and a has a tiled floor. The Aga provides a focal point set within a recess, and has a bressummer above, further integral appliances include a 'NEFF' oven, hob, extractor, and a fridge.

From the kitchen a door leads to a rear stairwell, which has an impressive oak frame on display, and a further door leads to a practical office that has a door and views to the rear garden.

The cellar is accessed from the outside within the Victorian addition, and is of an impressive size, with three chambers and has a Belfast sink, and houses the oil-fired boiler.
The first floor is equally impressive, and is accessed via a galleried landing which has wonderful views to the front, an arch topped window, a door to the attic rooms and a useful cloakroom.
